We’re on a mission to improve women’s mental health

Established in 1984, the Maya Centre is a community-based charity in Islington providing free, culturally sensitive counselling, group work and complementary therapies.

We support women on low incomes whose mental health has been affected by a range of experiences including depression and anxiety, violence against women and girls, inequality, discrimination and racism.

We work together to give women from different cultural and language backgrounds more voice, choice and control over their wellbeing and life decisions.

For over 30 years, our service has provided a safe women-only space in which to talk to a specialist counsellor.

The Maya Centre is a team of qualified and dedicated professionals with a passion for women’s mental health and wellbeing.


Mental health services are stretched to the limit right now, and women without access to mainstream therapy are struggling. 

Could you help give them a lifeline?
